before announcing the winners I wanted to mention a few stand out images for me,it was very difficult choosing a winner..and I’m very grateful to all who entered,so big thank’s to everyone!

Kingrafix:
‘Mech render’.lots of fun looking at this one,I love seeing the bot scaled even smaller and working away to repair the mech,and the floater bot freebie too..a little hard to read initialy as the composition feels a bit noisy, where your other image could be read easily at a glance,had some cool postfx too.nice work!

Jamahoney:
good use of a difficult model,this sci-fi corridor is often limited in scope, so I apprecciated the surreal twist on yours.. plus,good storytelling.

xmasrose2:
the sketchy look works really well in this,not overdone at all which is so easy to do with sketch renderers/filters ,composition is very nice too ..leading the eye comfortably around the image

redhorse2:
wow,that looks like it would’ve taken ages to setup!..well done, it’s so nice to see the city environments populated

SabotSsnake:
fun image..very cool!

David Brinnen:
very polished, very cool..you Bryce guys had a great showing in the challenge..Bryce aint dead yet smile

Laticis:
your bot reading the book image was beautiful,it’s also been my desktop wallpaper for the last week ..thanks, the lighting,storytelling,composition..all spot on!..your other entry was perfect too!,hope to see you rendering many more images using my models in the future!

Mattymanx:
pretty cool image Matty,colors and bright lighting is working well…gotta say I’m always just as curious to see how you’ll sign each image as I’m about seeing them

barbult:
I really loved your image,converting the courtyard to a pool is a pretty sweet idea, and oddly enough works quite well,well done! very creative

Ippotamus:
that’s some pretty cool depth of field in the ministry image & judging by your other image you seem to go for views others rarely render from

samc:
your vilage courtyard reder has some great lighting in it.. and I like the overgrown look

TheSavage64: the dalek pic made me smile..nice one!

wendycatz:
these types of images are so cool…much fun was had figuring out what each model was

AlphaChannel:
you sure do like those snowy images..I loved the cinematic view of urban future

Wirenut2:
epic,love the whiteout /desaturatedlook,,a great showcase of the greeble city blocks

Szark:
a beautiful nature render,the vibrant colors and lighting is very well one,botrh you and MelanieL had some renders using enchanted forest

Dire Bunny:
the background in this looks awesome,very cinematic..I’d almost prefer it without the figures and cropped to a widescreen format

scorpio64dragon:
your troll image is very cool,nice storytelling

Horo:
always feel like i’m falling over looking at your fish eye view of urban future,nice work! ..if only it were populated like Redhorse’s entry

SaikoMM2:
such a vibrant image,has a great anime feel to it..the chromatic abberation is a bit strong..but still a cool image.your other entry has some great action going on!

steveh:
loved your view of urban future4,the blown out lighting worked quite well

Kinich:
the stonemason yard was awesome..so many little details,had fun looking at this one!

Geminii232:
awesome composition on both entries, you lead the eye really easily through the image ..very well done!

pete.c44:
a rather mundane subject matter, but executed very well ..I liked this images composition a lot (btw,you would’ve placed 7th overall ,you should feel proud )

dowd2:
two cool entries ,,you have a good eye for composition


Isikol:

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

Stefan, thanks for the honorable mention, and running the contest, it was good idea and a lot of fun - while it doubtless has taken up a lot of your precious time, it is to be hoped the community appreciate the effort that has gone into it.  Also, it gave us Brycers a chance to show what 7.1 Pro can do when the DS Bridge will deign to let us at your excellent content!

Cheers,

David.

Hi Stefan,

Thank you very much, I cant imagine how difficult judging such a massive contest would have been.

Your work and products are deeply inspiring to me and thousands more,  they are always a pleasure to work with.
To know you had my image as desktop wallpaper is a huge honor, thank you.

Congratulations to all the winners and to all the entrants, what a wonderful contest, what wonderful images.

Love your work Stonemason.

Cheers Laticis

Congrats. Laticis (and to all the other winners). Thanks also to Stefan (Stonemason) for the contest, and super models.

Btw..had to hunt down Laticis’s images, however, both can be seen here...save you doing the same.

Jay
(thanks also to all for your votes - so much appreciated).
